I bought the Coby Kyros MID7015 a week ago. I started by going to the Coby website and downloading the firmware upgrade. From what i have read you should not expect any change in the performance of your unit after installing this update, its geared towards anti-virus protection. Im not sure if that information is correct though. I tried to do some of these modifications that everyone is writing about but i could only figure out how to root the device, and im not even sure what that does. So if anyone reads this and can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. So this is what ive noticed in the week i have been using it. The wi-fi is easy to set up but the range is short, and it disconnects sometimes. The appslib barely ever works but there arent any good apps anyhow. I downloaded VLC and i van watch all my movies and tv shows via my 16gb micro sd card, the screen looks good and all my movies play without a problem. The battery life seems to be very good, although i wish it could charge with the usb cable. The screen resolutuion is very good, but using a resistave (is that the right word) takes some getting used to. Overall im happy with the performance of this device especially for the price. I would reccomend it, but it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish with it. I wish i was more tech savy.

great product however it not multi touch screen. But if you willing to spend 100 buck more for their latest tablet is the 10 inch one with 1ghz and it capacitive touch screen which mean you can multitouch

Bought this unit for my son thinking it would be equivalent to a rooted ColorNook. We rooted the Coby Kryos immediately so we could download the Google Apps we use on our phones. I like the touch screen on my ColorNook much better as compared to the resistive touch screen on the Kyros; however, there's over a $100 difference in price between the two units.

Another thing we noticed with the Kyros using Froyo 2.1, is the apps don't sleep. If you leave the wireless on in sleep mode it will drain the battery fast. This may be due to rooting it with Froyo. If you turn off the wireless, the battery during sleep mode is improved considerably. When my son gives it back to me, I'll load it with Gingerbread to improve the battery life.

Overall, my son likes the unit. He has had it now for 3-weeks and already read 3 books. He likes surfing on it and takes it work almost every day. This is the reason he has not let me upgrade the unit to Android 2.33. Personally, if you like to piddle, I'd go with the ColorNook because the touch screen is much better and Otterbox makes a cool case. Otterbox does not make anything for the Kyros. If you want something cheap that works, Kyros will do and will work fine as a reader with BN books and Kindle books.

i was excited about this purchase but was forced to return it. I was not aware it did not support flash, or anything like flash. So, it was ultimately useless for the person I purchased it for.

I've had the tablet for about a month and it has been a real pleasure to use. It arrived quickly after my purchase and I haven't put it down since. Great product and great service. Thanks!

I played with this for a couple of days now. All I can say is it works as it should. The app store that came with it is limited. I rooted mine and it made it better with the better app store. I found a NES emulator and I can play a lot of NES games on it. If you want to do emulation, dont buy this one, as almost all games require multiple inputs. You cant steer and shoot at the same time because of the on screen control buttons. Next tab I get will be an android OS with multiple touch.
With the root you can get skyfire browser that will allow flash.
A tablet with Android 2.2, I believe will cover the flash issue.
I must say that it only works part of the time. It usually will play the video but the audio is out of synch and its purple.
You tube works just fine.

All in all I think it is a good purchase for 140 dollars.
One thing that I did notice is that the games in the app store are simple little phone games. I think that If I had bought an IPad for 500 bucks, I would have been horribly dissapointed. Pads are not PCs and I would have hated myself for buying a 500 dollar Ipad just to squish ants on my screen.
Remember that tablets are just hand held video games with e mail, facebook, and U tube.

My biggest surprise was that this tablet didn't come with a calendar app. I could have sworn the ads said it did.

The Apps Store that comes with it is ok, but doesn't have all of the apps I really wanted (i.e. a calendar app). However, after I updated and rooted it, I was able to get the Android Market, which gave me access to Touchdown that connects to my work Exchange server giving me the contacts and calendar functions I wanted -- plus a nicer email client than the default one.

The touch screen works pretty well, but I seem to do better with the stylus it comes with. Also, it comes with lots of other accessories...usb to mini usb, mini usb to female usb for keyboard connections, and a case. HDMI out works pretty well also, but you have to buy that cable.

In terms of an ebook reader, it comes with Aldiko, which works very well. However, after being rooted, I was able to also download all of the various reader apps...Kindle, Nook, and WordPlay. All work very well.

If you're just interested in a reader and a bit of browsing, it works great. For other more robust tablet functions, it works with some effort, but is slow. Then again it didn't cost near as much as an iPad :-)

We bought this for our 6 year old. She mainly uses it as an mp3 player in the car [we also bought a 12ft audio cord so it can be plugged into the car and reach to her in the backseat]. She also plays games on it which are apps I have downloaded via Amazon. This unit can not download directly from the Android app Marketplace. It also does not contain flash, and can not support it so a lot of the web browsing will be limited- ie, no using the PBS kids website. The player struggles with playing music and running a game app at the same time. It periodically flakes out and requires a forced reboot. My recommendation is to spend the extra $30 to $40 for the MID-7024 or newer model which will support flash and possibly be able to access the Android Marketplace. I am very pleased with my purchase for its purpose. It was an introduction tablet computer for my 6 year old. It doesn't need to be the iPad. I wouldn't be letting her cruise the web and social sites unsupervised anyway so the fact that this model is more basic is good for me.
The features are easy to use and work properly. The touch screen is very good. You will need to purchase a micro-SD card for extra storage though. I bought a 16gb.

About a month ago I picked up the Coby Kyros MID 7015 tablet for my sons 14th birthday. Right out of the box it was impressive. Fast, easy to use, intuitive and fun. Now after about a month of use it freezes, the Appslib wont connect anymore to get apps. The Coby website says to do a factory reset to fix this problem but you will lose all saved data unless you backed it up. I have done this 3 times now just so I can load one or two apps before the Appslib quits working again so, that is a bit frusterating. The screen clarity on it is ok and it plays movies well. Games like "Angry Birds" dont work like they should and dont appear like they should. Maybe there is a graphics setting somewhere that will allow the score and lettering to show up. I havent tried rooting it yet for the Google marketplace and im not sure im savy enough to do it but, I'm sure my 14yr old can and likely will. As far as the funtionality of this little tablet goes, it works fairly well for what it is. At Amazons price I really can't complain. Would I recommend this tablet to anyone? Sure, its a great entry level tablet. Would I buy another one? NO, I feel that for a little more money I can get a better tablet...

First thing I did was root, now went to google play, got all my apps, and I can do anything an Ipad can do,

for $40. This is a nice little backup, and does it all.
